What are people saying about being part of a SHIFT group?

“I was challenged to rethink priorities and relationships in my life in a good way.”
“It’s encouraging to hear that other leaders are struggling with similar things. Also to hear about those who used to do things one way, but changed as a result of relationships is huge.”
“Over the last two weeks as a part of this coaching group God has taken away my “To-do” list and it has been terrifying! Somehow all my items are still getting marked off the list but its no longer my focus. My focus has shifted to people and relationship rather than lists.”
“It’s amazing the level of transparency just after 4 sessions.”
